"Farmhand" a new Molly A Poole watercolor

“Farmhand” 8″x8″ watercolor on paper.
A few weeks ago, I stopped by our neighbor’s home to pick up some tomato, zucchini and cucumber starts from her greenhouse to plant in my own garden. Vicki is a talented organic farmer and her vegetables are so healthy and grown with care. I noticed back on the property, not too far from the greenhouse a fabulous old truck with fading advertising. I just had to photograph it and paint it. The pattern, texture, fading and rust are so interesting as well as the hand painted lettering that you don’t see much of anymore.
What’s an old truck without an old dog to ride around with?
